Apple The iPhone is out and about, and everyone waiting in line for hours/days got one (including Woz, and the mayor of Philadelphia who apparently had nothing better to do). Unboxing pictures here, dissecting pictures here, PDF manual, and one of the best-designed iPhone web apps can be found here: the iPhoneAppsManager (requires a Safari/Webkit browser to work). Update: Reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Update 2: It is claimed Apple UK will announce a 3G iPhone on Monday, as well as deals with Vodafone and T-Mobile. Update 3: Lots of screenshots reveal no "weekend/weekday" recurrence in the alarm app.

If it is in fact true that the iPhone is locked to an integrated sim card (I've read conflicting reports on this) then that is something that they'll have to fix before they start selling to europe. In many countries it is illegal to sell locked phones and in others the phone must be unlockable for a service fee.


While I have also seen the conflicting reports, from forum conversations, it's starting to look more and more like it is completely locked in its current incarnation. I'm guessing that the European version may be unlockable, but that the process would require actually tacking the phone to a store in Europe, or in the case of iTunes, have a credit card with a European billing address the way they limit the various iTunes media stores.

But if I cannot remove the sim card, I cannot put in a new sim card and thus I cannot change carriers. And that would be illegal in many places.

Edit: OK it seems the sim card is easily removed and swapped. Should have check Google before posting.
